    Get Out of The Box

    [2:05]

    We’re not bound by the limitations that others might impose on us, and the diverse aspects within us defy narrow societal labels like race or religion.

    The boxes others may put us in are oftentimes to make them comfortable even if they cause us discomfort.

    You have the power to establish things as “good” or “bad” in your life, even if other individuals don’t agree, and this includes your family.

    Discovering Who You Are

    Barani recounts a tale of succumbing to the circumstances of her life, only to realize that her present situation was a result of the decisions she either took or neglected.

    [12:55]

    Life is about discovering who you are and not who others want you to be.

    You Will Survive

    [21:01]

    In the journey to self-discovery you have two choices: either get uncomfortable with change or get comfortable with the unknown.

    [23:50]

    In the valley of whatever you’re currently going through, you must believe and know that you will survive it and live to tell about it.

    Give Yourself Permission

    If you’re feeling stuck and don’t know what to do next, get still and quiet the space around you, and you will tune into your inner knowing that will guide you forward.
